Adrian Bowie Will Play in Poland

Adrian Bowie (2007-11) has signed to play next season with Polpharma Starograd Gdanski in Poland's top pro league. From a story in the Baltic Journal (translation):
Adrian Bowie is the new playmaker for Polpharma. Starogard is therefore already on the verge of completing the team's composition for the 2011/2012 season. To complete the roster of the Polish Cup winners, they are only missing a center.

The 22-year-old Bowie is a recent graduate of Maryland, where he played for the Maryland Terrapins collegiate team. Adrian Bowie played a total of 135 games in the colors of this team. In the 2010/2011 season, he was an important part of the team, averaging 8.8 points, 3.5 assists, and 3 rebounds.

"We were looking for options on the point guard position. I must admit that we had several candidates, but went with Bowie. This is a young player from a good university, and we hope that will be useful on our team" Roman Olszewski, president of SKS Sport SA said, explaining the team's choice.
The team's press release (translation) also notes that Bowie hails from the same school that produced other great point guards, such as Steve Francis, Steve Blake, and Sarunas Jasikevicius. Last season, Polpharma finished in 5th place in the league and was eliminated in the quarterfinals of the league playoffs, but they did win the mid-season Polish Cup tournament.
